Mental ill health is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Psychologists along with other mental health professionals play a significant role in the prevention and treatment of mental ill health.
One of the ongoing challenges psychologists face in doing this is communicating important mental health concepts to the wider community. It was this challenge that led Dr Gareth Furber to make contact with Match Studio to discuss how psychologists could collaborate with emerging designers to create engaging and informative mental health education materials for the general public.
Facilitated by Match Studio, this exhibition presents clinical tools and product prototypes designed and developed by UniSA’s Communication Design students in consultation with practicing psychologists to ‘visualise’ complex mental health concepts. Themes of the 2018 exhibition include ‘theory of mind’, the mental health of university students, emotions, and behaviour change.
Presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre and Match Studio
